My fiance and I are getting married in 43 days (wow) and the RSVPs have started rolling in. We wanted a semi small wedding, just our families and close friends in attendance. We both have fairly large families so with just families and a few close friends we are hovering around 115. Our goal was under 100, but it's not too much over, so no big deal. We are trying to keep it as intimate as possible with that many people, so we even didn't invite a few distant family members that we don't talk to much. We did not allow anyone plus ones either for budget and the same intimacy reason. Several people have asked us if they could have a plus one, but we politely told them that due to budget, size, etc. we unfortunately couldn't allow any plus ones. Some people we know who the plus one would have been, and would have been ok with that person in attendance, but we wanted to stay consistent and not make any exceptions, chancing something going wrong, people getting upset, whatever the case would be.
So, yesterday we got an RSVP in the mail that was from my fiance's cousin. The envelope was just addressed to him. His name only, no "and guest" or "plus one." On the RSVP he put 2 for number attending. So what do we do? Do we mention it to him and make things awkward or do we just have to suck it up and allow the plus one? It is his girlfriend who we have met briefly twice, never have really had a conversation with her, so we don't really know her at all.
